This interactive virtual workshop will introduce participants to a critical resource for the fields of crime victims, elder abuse, and abuse in later life: Increasing Access to Healing Services and Just Outcomes for Older African American Crime Survivors. This toolkit features the voices and lived experiences of older Black victims seeking support and services. Throughout the workshop, the presenters will identify the various structural oppressions within society and the victim assistance field which limit the ability of older African American victims to access critical supports and services.
